Hi, just signed up. Yet another person trying to find a better alternative to reddit, which in my opinion has become too dominated by haters.

This looks like a positive space, full of interesting themes.

Yep, same here. I was banned from dozens of subreddits for my political views, and thus I moved here as this seems like a more sane and calm website I can discuss things at without being yelled at when stating my opinion.

Welcome, RedditUser. No need to fear getting banned for your views here. Moderation is bottom up, meaning you choose what or who you want to listen to. This feature is highlighted just below the top bar when first entering tags, or under "moderation" when viewing another user's profile. Of course, keeping an open mind is encouraged.

Enjoy your stay!

Welcome!

My impression so far is that the conversations tend to be a lot more mellow, in part because it is a smaller community and people remember each other. I had the same experience on smaller subs on reddit. I love that approach as it makes people better at listening, and less likely to attack each other.

It is quieter, but my experience is that people welcome comments and new posts.

I still use Reddit, but I believe it's important to have a diversified social media ecosystem. There is too much concentrated power in the hands of a few internet companies right now, and that power ultimately leads to stagnation and abuse.
